7:00 am
to give you the west in local news at 4:00 a.m. that's what's happening. we're back at 7:25. breaking overnig good morning. breaking overnight, peace prize surprise. disappointment around the world as the young pakistani teen who bravely took on the taliban does not win the nobel peace prize. we'll tell you who did. snowden surfaces. the first new imagines of the nsa leaker out this morning as he is honored for his role as a whistleblower. even as new questions surface over possible missed warning signs. and what does the fox say? the men behind the viral sensation that's taken the world by storm will perform it for us live on the plaza today. friday, october 11th, 2013.
7:01 am
>> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie. live from studio 1-a in rockefeller plaza. and good morning. welcome to "today" on a friday morning. i'm matt lauer. >> i'm savannah guthrie along side al roker and natalie morales. today we will answer the age-old question that's stumped people for generations, what does the fox say? >> and we'll answer the question how long will it be before you get that song out of your head? >> two to three days. >> sunday. exactly. we'll get to that later on. we want to get right to today's top story. there's controversy around the nobel peace prize being awarded to the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons and not to a 16-year-old girl named malala yousufzai. andrea mitchell has more on that. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt. it is surprising and controversial. the decision seems to reflect both politics and the
7:02 am
committee's concern that malala was too young to be awarded the world's most prestigious prize. she might win it in the future. it set off anger and disappointment around the world. she has made a profound difference for women living under the brutality of oppressive regimes like the taliban. at the age of 14 encouraged by her father she started speaking out leading to a taliban gunman boarding her school bus and shooting her in the head. and also injuring some of her classmates. this week as she continues to campaign around the world for the right for girls to be educated the taliban issued a new death threat vowing to kill her where ever she is. she did seek refuge and medical care in england. and that is where she's been living now. she'll be in washington today. even more surprising, also, the fact that the u.n. chemical weapons inspectors got the prize instead of malala. only this week they made their second trip in to destroy assad's chemical weapons.
7:03 am
very dangerous and very challenging but only just beginning. from even my acquaintance with her, this disappointment will not stop malala and her worldwide campaign. she is only a teenager. but this young woman is just getting started. >> we agree with that. our congratulations also to the winners of the prize. andrea mitchell in washington, thank you very much. now to the new image of edward snowden. our first look at the nsa leaker since he sought asylum in russia. the government may have missed warning signs about snowden years ago. let's turn to richard engel here with more. good morning. >> good morning. edward snowden says according to americans who met him in russia that he loves the united states and he is grateful that russia granted him asylum. the first glimpse of edward snowden on the lam in russia is of him holding an award, a prize for whistle-blowing.
7:04 am
it was given to snowden by four other americans all ex-intelligence and security who support that the young computer expert, formerly with the nsa revealed classified information about american intelligence programs including the collection of u.s. phone and e-mail records. >> we have more and more whistle-blowers coming to the government accountability project than we have had before. so i think if the u.s. is trying to clamp down and send a message by making an example, courage is contagious and he's had a wonderful effect for the u.s. and the world. >> reporter: the americans who met with snowden told nbc news he's settling in well in russia and might never return home. >> he looks very healthy, well-rested, centered and grounded. he was funny and engaging. he did not seem worried. he did not seem to have lost weight or appear pale or sick in any kind of way. he's been reading russian
7:05 am
authors and studying russian history and trying to understand the politics. >> reporter: but snowden apparently also worries elements of the u.s. government want to kill him. there's no evidence he's an actual target. that would be illegal. >> we asked him about it and he shook his head. you know, so he is aware of these things. >> reporter: snowden according to his lawyer is now looking for a new job and has received many high-paying offers to work in computer programming in russia. and today, on the cover of "the new york times," a report that four years before these last leaks came out, the supervisor snowden was working with at the cia said in a warning in his report that he was a possible leaker. how that was passed over in a background check replamains unexplained. >> a lot of questions. thank you so much. now to the latest on the shutdown showdown. there's some movement on a deal to get the government back to work and also to avoid a default.
7:06 am
peter alexander has that story this morning. hi, peter. >> reporter: hi, matt. good morning to you. senate republicans are going to meet with the president very shortly. but we're hearing a much different tone from just days ago as well as new urgency. there are cleans an end to the shutdown and the debt limit standoff may finally be within view. after a long night of negotiations, new optimism this morning that washington might find a solution to both problems it created. house republicans described their meeting with the president as useful and productive, even if no final decisions were made. >> we'll come back to have more discussions. the president said he would consult with the administration folks. and hopefully we can see a way forward after that. >> reporter: that way forward may include an end to the government shutdown by monday, according to a top house republican on cnbc.
7:07 am
>> if we're going to open the government, we need to come to some negotiation on that and relatively short order because people are hurting. >> reporter: also on the table, a short-term fix to ensure the nation has enough pain to pay its bills, raising the so-called debt ceiling. it would avoid a potential economic catastrophe, default. a position the white house seemed willing to consider. >> the president is happy that cooler heads at least seem to be prevailing. >> reporter: for 11 days now, most americans have felt a lot like this little boy at washington's national zoo, locked out, with washington seemingly frozen in place. even the senate's historic ohio clock stopped ticking because the staff in charge of winding it was furloughed. in the florida keys, fishermen rallied for the everglades national pork to be reopened.
7:08 am
>> we can't make any money. >> reporter: republicans are clearly feeling the heat these days. our just-released poll shows the party has been badly damaged by these back-to-back crises. and republicans on the hill have been paying close attention to these new numbers and often hearing from real americans can drive compromise. that may be changing the situation. >> thank you very much, peter alexander. now, here's savannah. thanks. sincthe shutdown started we heard people voice their frustrations about the shutdown in congress. a new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll shows how angry they are. chuck todd, good morning. >> good morning. >> people don't like washington but there is one party that's getting more of the blame according to this poll. >> the shutdown has been, there's no sugar-coating this, a political disaster for the gop. here's who is to blame. 53% blame congressional republicans for this. 31% blame president obama. during the '95 shutdown,
7:09 am
republicans got more blame but they never crossed 50%. this is unprecedented even for shutdown politics. >> and there's a question about who puts political interests first and the republicans fare >> very badly. 70% said congressional republicans were picking politics over the country. this includes even 40% of republicans. president obama, 51% say he's picking politics over the country. but it's nowhere near where republicans -- >> and let's talk about the republican party in general. if midterm elections were held next month instead of next year, what might we see? >> i would say this. 9 the only good news in this poll is the date. it's october 2013. not october 2014. this negative view of the republican party in our poll, 25 year history of this poll, it has never been lower than this. 53% negative view for the republican party and when you look at the match-up in congress between democrats and republicans, who would you like to control congress? democrats have an eight-point lead. democrats haven't had a lead like this in four years, since
7:10 am
the honeymoon six-week period after president obama was inaugurated. this is what the shutdown has done to the republican party. >> however, people do not like this position i won't negotiate. >> the only talking point that republicans have successfully sold to the american public is that one, why won't you negotiate, mr. president? but look at this. most of the things we have seen in this poll, though, democrats have rallied around the president but republicans, particularly non-tea party republicans are backing off the republican party. and that's why this shutdown is playing the way it is. >> and as peter mentioned, politicians do their own polls. these polls are flying around capitol hill. is that why we're seeing movement suddenly? >> not to say our poll is creating urgency but our poll -- because it's conducted by campaign pollsters, no other major poll is done this way. >> republican and democrat. >> this one sent shockwaves last night. the urgency to flip the switch on this among republicans is at the highest point we've seen in
7:11 am
weeks. >> chuck todd, thank you so much. we appreciate it. thank you so much. there's new questions this morning about the cleveland kidnapper ariel castro's suicide. natalie has those headlines. >> that's right. good morning. those questions regarding the death of ariel castro found dead in his cell last month, a just released report suggests the death may not have been a suicide and questions remain about why he wasn't being watched more closely while in his prison cell. here's nbc's kevin tibbles. >> reporter: convicted cleveland kidnapper ariel castro was discovered hanging by a bedsheet september 3rd, just weeks into his mandatory life sentence. >> i'm not a monster. i did not prey on these women. i just acted on a sexual instance. >> reporter: revelations in a ohio department of corrections report now suggest castro's death may not have been suicide but possibly the result of accidentally choking himself
7:12 am
during a sex act in his cell. the report also alleges two guards falsified prison logs as to the number of times they checked on castro. those two guards have now been played on administrative leave. castro was arrested in may after holding three young women in his home for more than a decade. at his trial, michelle knight said life behind bars was the best punishment. >> the death penalty will be so much easier. you don't deserve that. you deserve to spend life in prison. >> reporter: while castro did allude to taking his own life in a 2004 letter, no suicide note was found in his cell. only a few pictures and an open bible. kevin tibbles, nbc news, chicago. former detroit mayor kwame kilpatrick was sentenced to 24 years for corruption. before he was sentenced, he said he was sorry but denied stealing from the city.
7:13 am
police and volunteers in new york city are pressing their search for a nonverbal autistic boy that's been missing now for more than a week. 14-year-old avante was last seen on surveillance tape running his family handed out flyers last night. most of the search has focused on rail yards and subway tunnels because he has a strong interest in trains. the mother of an american man detained in north korea is in pyongyang to visit her son. he was arrested last november while leading a group of tourists in north korea and sentenced to 15 years for what the government called hostile acts. kenneth's mother has not been able to see him for almost a year. she pleaded with north korean leaders for visitation rights after her son became ill. the vatican has pulled 6,000 commemorative medals because somebody forgot to use spell check. the medals honoring pope francis went on sale on tuesday. somebody happened to notice that
7:14 am
the word jesus stamped along the edge is misspelled as lesus with an l instead of a j. four were sold before the medals were withdrawn. their value is expected to skyrocket. visitors got a surprise when legendary rocker paul mccartney treated them to a free concert. mccartney played a quick four-song set. because it wasn't a planned concert, police only gave him 15 minutes. mccartney is promoting his new album entitled "new." 7:14. i think he should have kept going. >> i think the police could have given him a little license there. >> he does the cover of what does the fox say. >> you got snow to tell us about. >> that's right. it's early for our friends in flagstaff, arizona. they only picked up an inch but still had to break out the snowplows and get stuff going. but the kids, the kids always love it. nothing wrong with that. dad and his son. let's make some snow angels. let's show you what's going on. two big stories. in the plains, looking at some trouble there.
7:15 am
we have a risk of strong storms from grand forks, jamestown, fargo into alexandria. minnesota and minneapolis may get in on this. rainfall amounts anywhere from 2 to 3 inches. rapid city, we could be looking at some flooding there. we also have this pesky low. there's a big area of high pressure that's dominating. that high pressure won't move. so it's just kind of sitting there and not allowing this low to move on up so we continue to see this onshore flow. more rain. look at this, over the next 24 hours from philadelphia to d.c., about 2 to 4 inches of rain. less than that as you get up into new england but there could be coastal floodings and big problems through the weekend. airport delays from boston down to washington today because of the winds. that's your latest weather. we'll get to your forecast coming up in the next 30 seconds. wherever you are today,

7:17 am
handed out not long ago. people talking about that online? >> all over the world people are reacting to the news that malala didn't receive the nobel prize. she's captured our hearts, our attentions and honestly inspired, i think, all of us to be a little more courageous day to day. the anticipation was high. "time" magazine says, malala marches toward the nobel peace prize. malala yousafzai poised to win the nobel peace prize. all of social media on fire but one tweet stood out to me. and this is from a man from pakistan. he said, malala not given the nobel prize but she rules the hearts of millions with or without a political award. that sentiment reiterated over and over again but i like this tweet because it comes out of pakistan, her country, of course. and a couple of days ago malala was on with jon stewart. he asked her what she would do if she faced a gunman again. a very serious moment.
7:18 am
take a look. >> i would tell him how important education is and that i even want education for your children as well and i'll tell him that's what i want to tell you, now do what you want. >> you see there, jon stewart often has something witty to say. right after a moment, his breath taken away seeing the bravery and courage of malala and she was asked recently what she wants to do next. she said she thought about being a doctor but now she wants to enter politics and perhaps become the prime minister of pakistan. so this is in a way a disappointment but how can you stop this 16-year-old who is a force of nature? >> so young but the sky is the limit for her. >> so young but so brilliant. >> you do feel a little bad for the people that won the award. this is an incredible life achievement and all that's being said this morning is who didn't win the award. >> that's true. coming up, the real man behind the movie starring tom hanks, captain phillips. we'll talk to richard phillips
7:19 am
about what it's like to see his story on the big screen. and then, a warning if you're buying health insurance. beware of people using the new health care law to steal your money. but first, this is "today" on nbc. really special. it's like you want to tell the world. shout it from the rooftops.

7:22 am
also, what is in a kiss? >> more than you might think. >> yeah. >> pucker up, al. >> we're going to find out if a kiss is the true sign of sealing a relationship. >> that story after your local news.

7:27 am
>> union leaders say they are optimistic because b.a.r.t. and the directors and the general manager expected to be at the bargaining table when talks resume at 10:00 this morning. right now i want to check the forecast with meteorologist christina loren. foggy start in parts. >> yeah. good morning to you. happy friday everybody at home. i want to start with the golden gate bridge. the low clouds have returned. you see old glory not getting pickup at this time. so fog will be at its thickest throughout the next maybe half hour at best. it's going to start to burn off. you see from the shading the low clouds span all the way across the inner bay. 46 degrees the chilly start. that's concord. 48 in livermore and 49 in san jose so we drop into the 40s in the south bay. we'll rebound nicely. sunshine headed our way. by about lunch time temperatures climb into the 60s in the east bay and later on today we expect widespread 70s, 77 for livermore, warmer weekend headed our way. a look at our morning drive. >> we have a change at the bay

7:29 am
rather than by wagon or baby loaf bus. dale: we know you know this as it is told and retold by cheese-loving people around the world, but the farmers asked us to mention it. luke: enjoy tillamook cheese. dale: eat all you want. luke: we make tons.

you are looking at a few of the shots people around the country sent in of their sunrises. we want to see yours. you can tweet us. use the #todayssunrise. we'll put it up. 7:30 on friday october 11th, 2013. i'm savannah guthrie alongside matt lauer, al roker and natalie morales. let's take a look at the headlines this morning. surprise and disappointment around the world with the news of the nobel peace prize award going to a chemical weapons monitoring group and not to 16-year-old pakistani teen/activist malala yousufzai as expected. meanwhile, in washington there's new optimism between a meeting with the president and house republicans was described
7:31 am
as productive by both parties. and we're getting our first look at nsa leaker edward snowden since he sought asylum in russia. this as the government may have missed warning signs about him several years ago. and coming up, a fraud warning for anyone looking to sign up for health insurance under the new affordable care act. information you need to know. and "glee" paying a final emotional tribute to cory monteith, the show's star who died over the summer of a drug overdose. we want to begin this half hour with the movie "captain phillips." it opens in theaters today. it's about the captain and crew of a u.s. owned merchant ship taken hostage by somali pirates. the movie is based on the true story. we'll talk to the real captain richard phillips in a moment. but first, his dramatic story of survival. an attempted hijacking that turned into a hostage situation. >> even for somali pirates this was a brazen attack on a u.s. flag ship. >> reporter: the crew of the
7:32 am
maersk alabama cargo ship fought back against pirates 240 miles off the coast of somalia. as the crew managed to sail to safety, the pirates kidnapped the ship's captain, richard phillips, fleeing in a lifeboat. >> foremost in our minds is the safety of the captain. >> reporter: for nearly five days, he was held captive at gunpoint by four somali teens in an enclosed boat in the indian ocean until u.s. navy s.e.a.l.s managed to kill three of the four pirates in a daring rescue operation. what do you remember? >> being very scared and diving for the bottom of the deck and just getting as low as i could. >> reporter: some crew members later fired a lawsuit against the shipping company alleging phillips ignored warnings of high pirate activity in the area steering the vessel far closer than the advised 600 miles away from the coast. with that case still pending, it's tom hanks who plays captain phillips in the movie that hits
7:33 am
theaters today. >> the navy isn't going to let you win. they can't let you win. >> captain richard phillips, good morning. >> good morning. how are you doing? >> i'm all right. thanks. it's been a while. a lot's happened. >> it has. >> doing okay? >> yes, very well. >> you sat down and watched this movie. it has to be a weird experience. it's based on this episode in your life. a traumatic episode. did it capture it? >> i think it really did capture the stress and the tenseness, especially for the 12 hours on the ship with the pirates and again in the lifeboat and in the eyes of tom hanks and even the pirate, you can see that stress and tenseness that was going on. >> when we spoke a couple of days after you got back to vermont after being rescued in 2009 there was a lot you didn't want to talk about because it was so traumatic and so fresh and there were imagines you were trying to get out of your head. as you watch this movie again, does it bring those back inevitably? >> it's not a door that's closed. it's been four years and i
7:34 am
pretty much put it behind me. >> obviously, this is a hollywood movie. >> yes. >> so they take some poetic license with certain things. what's wrong in the movie? what's different as opposed to the way it happened? >> we all have to compress five days into two hours for a movie is tough. there's a lot of scheduling and things that couldn't be put in but i think they did a very good job in portraying what went on and how fearful the time was. >> as you know, the movie begins in somalia. and we get to see a little bit of the lives these would-be pirates are leading before they decide to take to the sea and and hijack the "maersk alabama." do you think in some ways this is a more sympathetic view of these pirates or forces some understanding of their circumstances? >> well, they are people. even though i believe they made the wrong choice and they are humanized as they should be. they are people, as i said.
7:35 am
but i think it just gives the viewer a background of where they're coming from. >> they're played brilliantly by some guys from minneapolis who are somalis who had never acted before. and you were played by tom hanks. i think your wife back to me in 2009 joked after you got home that if they ever made a movie about this episode, she wanted george clooney to play you. >> she did. >> you got tom hanks, instead. how did he do? >> he came up to visit me at my house in vermont a few times and when i met him, i told him if he is going to play me, he's going to have to put on a little weight and get better looking. he did neither but did a good job. >> he drives up to your house in vermont. you're not used to that sort of thing. what kinds of things did he want to know about you? >> he said he wanted to know about the story. he said he wanted to get an idea of the routine on the ships, the routine of myself at home and leaving my family and going back to work and vice versa. some nomenclature and vocabulary on the ship, routine on the
7:36 am
ship. he really just wanted a gist of that. >> something else swirling around the story is there's a lawsuit now filed by nine of your crew members. they're not suing you but they're suing the owners of the ship saying that you put them in harm's way. that you went too close to the shore and ignored some warnings of pirate activity. are you worried about that lawsuit? >> sure, i am. i believe six of the crew are still suing. it's been on for four years. within weeks of coming home the suit was initiated. and they are suing the company. but you have to understand, we in the merchant industry deal with piracy all over the world. philippines, east west coast of africa and south america and nigeria is worse than somalia ever is. >> you're back at sea. have you entered some of the places and is the threat of hijacking constantly in your mind? >> if you're going to be a merchant marine, you're going to deal with piracy.
7:37 am
merchant marine versus to deal with piracy. it's always a concern. >> obviously this movie is getting a lot of talk. there's talk about a possible academy award nomination for the film and for tom hanks. are we going to see you on the red carpet, you and andrea? >> hopefully i won't. >> richard phillips, captain, good to see you as always. >> thank you, matt. >> "captain phillips" hits theaters today. let's go to al and get a check of some pretty warm weather across much of the country. >> thanks, matt. we'll show you again the great #todaysunrise pictures you're sending in. keep them coming because we love seeing this. let's show you what we've got going on today. big area of high pressure dominating. that's a clockwise flow of air. it's bringing in a lot of warmth. you can see the jet stream way up to the north. look at the temperatures. for today, chicago, you're going to be at 77 degrees. that's 10 degrees above normal. des moines at 80. 13 degrees above normal. st. louis at 81 but there's a frontal system pushing through

7:39 am

8:46 am
cost. in this shed, they created their own space program. >> it's bought on ebay, it's old and russian. >> this is our test dummy, randy. >> reporter: one day, peter will replace randy piloting a rocket he is building. >> this is your home depot basically. >> reporter: sometimes sourcing parts from his local home improvement store. >> just for high pressure air. >> reporter: what kind of conversations have you had with your wife about this? >> oh, i think she is scared, a little bit. >> reporter: she is scared but supportive. peter's wife even has a rocket ship tattoo. >> your husband is blasted into space, your first reaction to this idea? >> i was like, really, that's dangerous. >> reporter: but these guys know what they're doing. they've already fired two successful test rockets and have even built a sub marine.

years before they send one of them into space because they want to sure. >> yeah. >> the wife is going to let him get in that thing? >> she says so. she is pleased that it's going to take a little time before they get to the takeoff because she is nervous. >> scared. >> do they need a driver's license or something? you can just go up into space? >> i said how come you're allowed to do this but they're taking off over the water. so i think there are some regulations. >> yeah. >> if that thing comes down in the wrong place -- >> yeah. >> and they land back in the water as well, we hope. >> yeah. >> keir, interesting, thank you. >> pleasure. coming up, we'll be back with much more. this is "today" on nbc. dale: we're from oregon

luke: oh it's older, it's got, it's probably older. dale: he knows cheese, not trees. luke: 9 months and a million years... dale: try it once. luke: you're hooked for life. we're back at 8:50, the iconic photograph the afghan girl has been seen around the world many times over and now the story is being revealed in a new book by the photographer steve mccurry. it's called untold, the story behind the photograph. jamie has the story. not only does he take beautiful pictures but he has an unusual way of taking pictures. >> we will tell you all about that. savannah, the book is an extraordinary collection of amazing imagines and the adventures behind them but it turns out we almost never even saw that photo of the afghan girl. >> reporter: for the last 30
8:51 am
years steve mccurry has been winning awards for his stunning photographs. none are more famous than this imagine, the afghan girl. >> i knew it was a powerful portrait but i never dreamed in a million years this would become an iconic photograph. >> reporter: but now according to his new book, mccurry reveals we almost never saw the photo. at the time he captured just a few frames and wasn't even sure they were in focus. >> you had almost no time to take her picture? >> i made a few pictures and she, after a few moments, got up and walked away. and i thought, wait a minute. i'm still shooting. >> reporter: luckily, he got the shot. but at first, they picked a different photo. >> so this almost became the photo, but at the last minute, it was this. what happened? >> the picture editor at the time was in favor of this picture with her hands on her face. it turned out that the editor of the magazine at the time chose
8:52 am
that picture and in a way the rest is history. >> reporter: we almost never saw this photo. >> we came within an inch of that being on the cutting room floor. >> reporter: instead, it became one of the most famous photos in history. >> you didn't know her name? >> didn't know her name. >> then 17 years later you decide we have to find her. but you weren't very optimistic. >> i thought there's no way. and we got really lucky. it was like a miracle. she remembered my photographing her that day because it was the first time in her life she had ever been photographed. in fact, the second time in her life she was photographed is when we were reuniting with her in february of 2002. >> reporter: but what makes mccurry's work more extraordinary is something he's never talked about before, while he risks his life covering everything from war zones to monsoons, if you watch closely, you'll notice he shoots differently from other photographers. instead of using his right hand, he uses his left. >> cameras are really designed
8:53 am
for right handed people and i've always had to shoot with my left finger. >> reporter: the reason, when mccurry was 5 years old, he had a bad accident. >> i was playing on steps. i fell and the break was very unusual. there was nerve damage. it just never quite heeled properly. >> reporter: the result, he lost most of the use of his right hand but mccurry says it never occurred to him that he couldn't be a photographer. >> i've never really let it bother me. i think the lesson to be learned is you do what you have to do. you adjust and you know, with enough determination and desire and passion for your work, you just make it happen. >> you picked a profession where you go into the most dangerous places in the world. you're carrying this equipment, you need to have a steady hand. have you ever thought to yourself i can't do this? >> i've always just powered through the situation and i
8:54 am
never let my hand slow my down. >> reporter: mccurry's work speaks for itself. thousands of imagines and one he knows he'll always be remembered for. >> you know when they write your obituary, the first line is going to be? >> photographed the afghan girl. >> is that okay? >> that's fine. i'm happy with that. i think to have such a photograph is a gift. >> it really is a gift for all of us. as for the story of steve's hand, savannah, he really has never talked about it before because he doesn't want it to define him. but it is a lesson for anyone with any kind of challenge out there, just go out there and do it. >> and how extraordinary that he was able to find her after all these years? >> it really was a miracle. a lot of people came through and pretended to be her, but he found the real one.
8:55 am
>> they recognized the scar on her nose. >> there was a scar on her nose. >> amazing story, thank you.
8:56 am

9:01 am
>> yeah. >> we got into it. it's hard not to. it sticks with you. and now it's going to stay with me all weekend. >> these guys are hilarious. not to get too analytical about it but it's a good question. what does the fox say. you stop to think about the animals, i don't know what the fox says. >> they say it's very individual. they say whatever they want to say quitely. >> wow, we need to get some scientists on that. what does the fox say. can we point out the cards? >> finally, we're official now. >> we have official today's take cards. available now at the nbc experience store. maybe not. >> today's take. >> a lot of people -- >> shutdown, day 11 now, right? >> shutdown is still going on. we have this wall street journal poll. the news is bad for everybody but the one number jumped out at us. would you fire every member of congress we asked the american public, yes. >> i'm surprised by that. i'm surprised it's not higher than that. >> every member. that's a lot of members.
9:02 am
>> 60% saying yes and 35% saying no. i'm surprised that's not higher. >> the approval ratings are dismal. >> they are and you have to hope at some point they're going to reach some sort of agreement soon because it's gone on far too long. >> one of the things that angers this week is the gym. the congressional gym stayed open while everything else was closed. >> sure. >> somebody came out the other day and said the gym is open but there's no towel service. there's no towel service. we are sacrificing and suffering with you. >> i can't take a shower after a workout. >> so jimmy kimmel had fun with that last night. watch this. >> i worked out today without a towel. >> i worked out today, without a towel. >> i went to work wet. >> i tried to use newspapers to dry off. wouldn't recommend it. >> no towel for me. >> no towel. >> we go without towels.
9:03 am
>> because sacrifices must be made. >> congress, wet because we care. >> my eyes, i didn't need to see that. >> wow. you guy want to go wrestle. jimmy kimmel last night. that was a really moving episode. the first time they really addressed cory monteith's death. >> yes, this was all very real. very true emotion. the tribute episode called the quarterback because his character played the quarterback. it started off a few weeks after his character died. we don't know in the episode what the reason for the death was. it was an emotional performance. ryan murphy saying everything you see is real. these were first takes because they couldn't get through more than one take and girlfriend lea michele, corey's real life girlfriend sings let you feel my

9:05 am
the cast members did do a psa against addiction and it was interesting because they said, you know, cory monteith had a problem with drugs but he didn't look like an addict. he didn't act like an addict. so really the message is, you don't know sometimes what an addict looks like or acts like and you have to be, you know, really aware of what's going on in that person's life. >> yeah. really nice tribute and difficult i'm sure. >> beautifully done. another story we're talking about in the newsroom this morning, this is a school district in oregon, just outside portland. >> this is very controversial. >> it is. they're going to try to pass and it sounds like it will pass later this year, a new requirement that if you want to graduate from that high school you have to get into a college. that's in addition to passing grades in all subjects and obtaining good attendance but they're expected to vote on a proposal that will require all students to apply and get
9:06 am
accepted to the college of their choice. now, they don't have to go to the college, but they have to get in. >> they have to apply and get in and accepted. >> and there's one out here. there's a community college right there locally that accepts anyone who applies so what a lot of people can do is apply to that college and they'll be accepted. they don't necessarily have to go but the school says it's to help people understand what it means to apply to college and how to do it and to keep options open. maybe you don't know you want to go to college and you need it some day. >> i think in principle it sounds good. the idea of forcing somebody to do something that's maybe not what their dreams are, then that always kind of i think rubs me the wrong way. but i think it's a good idea. i think you have to give kids, sometimes they don't know at that age what they want to do. so you have to give them options. >> if you read through it it is kind of just an exercise for the school. here's how you apply to college and you'll have this choice if you want it later if you get in. >> important to point out if the
9:07 am
kids can't afford the applications because applications can be expensive if you're applying to nine or ten schools at 150 or $200 a piece, the school will help them financially with the applications and process. >> it is for all juniors in high school to take the sats so driven into getting into college. look at unemployment statistics. you're much less likely to be unemployed. >> guidance counselors do such a good job in high schools but there needs to be overall more attention to making sure. >> yeah. >> that kids are really given hopes and dreams and the opportunities to fulfill those dreams, whatever those dreams maybe. >> and we should point out, too, you can also apply to a trade school and go there. so liberal arts education or whatever it is is your thing, you can go a lot of different ways with it. >> interesting to see that. we'll have to follow that. so the oxford dictionary is looking at new words. they seem to put in like crazier words every year. >> the words that have become part of our every day vernacular.
9:08 am
how much are you talking about somebody's backne. >> why did you look at me when you see that? >> i didn't. i looked at the camera. >> that's back acne, in case you needed the translation. >> we know. >> disgusting. >> these aren't words going in the dictionary but they're considering it. i haven't heard of this until today. hate watch. this is when you watch a show that you hate but in order to be able to chat about it. like if i were to say the real housewives; even though it's a guilty pleasure for some, it's sort of that. you're like come on this isn't real. >> but you watch it over and over and watch the reruns. >> and then you call your friends about it. >> or you complain about the end episodes. >> i think cronut. i don't know about dossaint. >> we heard about the duffin. >> never heard of this.

10:32 am
does, she'll be too weak to stand up to that. she has to figure out her relationship with herself before she confronts him. that involves core confidence. i'm not going to have my self-esteem tied to losing this man. that's why they don't say something, they're afraid of loss. if i can say it is more detrimental to my life to be in a relationship of pain than it is to be alone, now she's going to go and get the things she wants. >> that was good. >> even e.g. is impressed. >> i think matthew is a secret woman. you understand women. deeply. >> thank you. >> sheryl, is it okay to date your ex's best friend? >> if the breakup was clean, you respect one another, and the guy is hot, yes. if he has called you in the last six months crying, no. if you have called him in the last six months for a booty
10:33 am
call, no. >> i like that the principles are based on how hot he is. the fact is, firstly, what you can't find another one -- another guy among the 3 billion guys in the world that is not his best friend. if you can't -- if he's the love of your life, go for it. if this is a whim because you're lonely or in pain or trying to get back at the guy, don't do it. god forbid you're on the receiving end of that one day. >> there aren't that many good guys out there. there are not -- matthew, you are one in a trillion. >> i know that, but that's very different from saying there are no great guys out there. >> cane has a question. is it appropriate to expect a date to pay for most or all of the nights out or at what point in the date process should i begin reaching for the check to share some of the responsibilities. >> it is not about finances. it is about getting lucky. if a man asks you out and you go to dinner and you like him and you think later down the road at
10:34 am
some point you're going to go to bed with him, he pays. if he asks you out, you go to dinner and you don't like him and you know never, ever, ever are you going to get in bed with this guy, you offer to pay and then he pays. >> like being a hooker? >> but the point is, that was about the -- that's not about the first date. that's about you're a few dates in, what do you do? do you keep letting him pay? i don't like to let a lady pay, no. but here's the point. a lady shouldn't expect it. i think a man should pay but a lady shouldn't expect it. >> a lady can pay by inviting him to her apartment for dinner. not for that. you pervert, no. just to make dinner for him. every man loves that. >> i think it is tough for women in the position that they're in today to want equality in every other area, and then in a relationship say, but i don't want to contribute in that area. i think that sends out a confused message. i think for women -- especially
10:35 am
since you guys have more money than us now. so for most women in that position, once they get into the relationship, if they want to be there, then they should be contributing. by the way, it is a guy's prerogative, if he wants to insist he pays for everything, she has the choice to let him. i think the expectation is what ruins relationships. >> i think it changes the dynamic of the relationship. >> if you don't like a guy, don't pick up the check. >> okay. >> if you don't like the check, don't pi -- guy, don't pick up the check. how to get the layered look for fall without adding bulk. it is very important. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ i ♪ know i can't deny... ♪ that i got a new feeling
